    About Me

    Hi! It's nice to meet you! I hope I get the chance to help you with your English because I truly love teaching. I teach ages 1-16 in a Colegio in Torrejon de Ardoz, and I love every moment with my kiddos. I am very energetic, friendly, and out-going and you won't have to worry about feeling shy or nervous to practice with me.
    My belief is that when people are comfortable, they are much more likely to succeed and excel in languages. For that reason, I do everything in my power to make students feel comfortable, confident and excited to learn. I welcome mistakes with open arms because after all, mistakes are the best way to learn when it comes to new languages.

    A little bit about me...
    I am from the United States, specifically from Pennsylvania, however, I went to school at the University of Kentucky and graduated with a degree in Psychology & Spanish Language. I love to travel and have travelled and studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain and Valparaíso, Chile.
    I have worked with children for over 6 years in various settings: schools, research labs, psychology clinics, and NGOs...I have a clear passion for working with children and strongly believe that we learn as much from them as they learn from us.
    In my free time, I am an avid reader, I love to sing and play instruments, and I am a big fan of musicals and theatre. I also love spending time with my friends and exploring nature and the city of Madrid.

    Education

    I graduated from the University of Kentucky with an average GPA of 3.89 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology & Spanish Language. During my time in university, I studied in Sevilla, Spain for 8 months and later in Valparaiso, Chile for a summer completing an internship with an NGO for vulnerable youth.

    Experience / Qualifications

    As far as my experience with children, I have worked with children in various educational settings for over 6 years. Some of that experience includes volunteering as a tutor for elementary-aged children, completing an internship with a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the educational abilities of vulnerable youth in Valparaíso, Chile and working as the Developmental Coordinator for a small NGO in Lexington, Kentucky that is dedicated to helping enhance students educational abilities in an after-school setting for children living in poverty. Currently, I am completing a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language that will be completed by May.
    In terms of working with adults, I have many friends who speak English as a second language and have immensely helped them improve upon their skills in a number of ways: the main ones being through conversation and providing a comfortable environment for them to feel confident practicing and improving upon their abilities.

    Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
    These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

    ESP - Hola, soy Lucie y me encantaría ayudarte a aprender inglés, que sea principiante más avanzado. Me encanta hacer mis estudiantes hablar porque pienso que la práctica es el segredo para aprender un idioma o mejorar tu conocimiento. Siempre organizo mis clases por temas inspirados en la vida cotidiana (como presentarse, como hacer una cita, ir de compras, una cita con el medico, inglés profesional, etc.). Haremos ejercicios de gramática, vocabulario y de pronunciación. Se tienes el nível intermedio, haremos clases con artigos para que puedas hablar. Así pondremos la gramática y el vocabulario en práctica. Y pueda dar clases in español (o portuñol).

I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be happy to help you learn English, whether it's from scratch or to improve your knowledge.

    English Lessons for Elementary and Middle School Students
    Do you want your child to speak English and be successful in the future ? So these classes interest you. I am a self-taught person and I got the license in French linguistics, but I speak 3 other languages including Arabic, English and Spanish. Then, I have 3 years of experience in language teaching. In fact, my classes consist of grammar, phonetics, conversation, writing, activities and lots of fun games. I consider myself patient, and I believe that often demanding small children is not the key, but rather it is better to understand them. So, if you are very interested, do not hesitate to contact me !

    I teach German, English and Spanish classes online
    Languages are my passion. If you are interested in learning spanish, english or german do not hesitate to contact me! I was born in Spain and I studied English and German Philology at the University in Bonn, Germany, where I lived for 6, 5 years. I think that learning a new language enhances your abilities to communicate with other people and broadens your horizons. German is a versatile language that has a really interesting word structure and is very useful in many academic fields. Spanish is the world`s second-most spoken native language and I would be glad to teach you this language, as it is my mother tongue. English is a relevant language with a high cultural relevance all over the world.

    Hello! My name is Almu and I am 24 years old. I offer private English classes online by Skype and at home in Madrid at all levels, even if you are an adult and want to learn the language of 0 or prepare for exams. If you are interested or interested I will be happy to answer you by message on the platform I have a bilingual level, I was a private English teacher for 3 years and I have experience at levels from Primary to Bachelor, with students from 4 to 17 years old. I was also working and living as an au pair in different parts of Ireland for 2 years, from 2019 to 2021, with different families and children from 3 to 11 years old. I like to adapt to the level and age of the student, that English is learned at all ages in a natural, dynamic and fun way, especially for the little ones, I like to teach the language in a more playful way with crafts, songs, games and situations of everyday life in English. My classes last from one to 2 hours and are very dynamic: first we see what unit of the book the student is going through and what it is about, we review the last thing he has given and I help him understand the activities he has. I organize the content of each unit in grammar, verbs and vocabulary, and I focus on the 4 language skills: speaking, listening, writing and reading. With the kids we do games in English, crafts, listening or reading, and with teenagers or adults I like to use music or movies or series that they like to translate a song or a scene from English to Spanish. If you want to learn English from 0, I take a level test in the first class to adapt to your level and progress little by little, teaching English with everyday life situations and focusing on the 4 skills, vocabulary and the structure of the language in in terms of grammar, syntax and verbs, to get to speak English like a native and to be able to understand the different accents. Write me and tell me what goals you want to achieve or what your sons or daughters need, thank you very much, we talk!

    How to learn Italian and English easily and in a funny way
    I specialize in tutoring English and Italian for school or personal puroposes. I aim at conveying my passion for languages and at making my lessons as enjoyable as possible. I am a native Italian speaker, but I have an advanced English level (C1) thanks to my experiences abroad. My goal is to teach grammar, but I mainly aim at focusing on conversation and vocabulary because, in my opinion, they are the most important things when learning a language.

    English course all educational levels and / or school support
    Faced with the new situation posed by the bilingual educational system and the globalized labor market, it is necessary to develop the necessary competences in the English language (reading, writing, speaking and listening). Classes are aimed at students regardless of the educational cycle in which they are (Primary, Secondary, Baccalaureate), as well as adults who are in a situation of improving their English skills for professional or personal reasons. In the same way, depending on the level at which the student is (Primary, Secondary, Baccalaureate or University), the techniques and strategies applied for the organization of work are fundamental, and must be adapted to the specific context of each student. After more than fifteen years working in this aspect with students of all ages, I offer a personalized and global school support service, attending to all aspects that surround the student's life at all times.
